i've been eyeing a few items on the lululemon website for WEEKS now, but only just the other day did i find out from a friend that there's a store 20 minutes away from me! i can't believe i didn't figure this out earlier - especially since they have a run club each week and fun yoga events. hopefully i will make it to one or two of those before i leave for school in a month!
anyway, before we left the house i went for a 4-mile run and then refueled with lunch: 95% lean frozen turkey burger (only ingredients were white turkey, sea salt, and black pepper. win!) with half of an avocado and some ketchup on toasted whole wheat bread.
and i actually put on a normal outfit today! usually i wear running shorts and tshirts to work since things are prone to get froyo all over them, and since i've been basically living at work i haven't put on normal clothes in quite awhile. it definitely felt nice :)
and then it was time to shop!
i tried on about 50,000 things in lululemon and basically wanted to buy the whole store. luckily i talked myself out of any sort of pants or long sleeved anything because i'm going to be living in LA so those would basically be a waste of money. i mainly was looking for a really good running tank, but all of the ones i tried on i wasn't in love with (or not enough to fork out $58 for it!). but i did find an awesome pair of running shorts that are super comfy and light, the perfect length, really flattering, and have a zipper pocket and 2 fuel pockets. (they're the turbo run short, in case you were wondering!) i also had to get a pink headband, of course!
i gotta say i'm so proud of myself for only spending $77 on my first trip to lulu!
i also stopped in sephora while my mom was doing some other shopping - i wanted to get an eyeshadow primer so that i could wear a little eyeshadow without it clumping up in the creases of my eyelids.
i ended up getting the urban decay eye shadow primer and also got one of their eye shadow pencils (the color was called rehab). i love the eye shadow! i tried it on when i got home and it's the perfect shimmery light brown that i was looking for. and so far there's no creasing - fingers crossed the primer lasts for awhile.
i also grabbed some blotting papers for when i'm out and my face gets oily (which happens a little too often) and a sharpener for the eye shadow since i didn't have one. i still feel like such a newbie to makeup because i don't wear it that often - and walking in sephora can be so overwhelming! luckily when i got my makeup done for senior ball i figured out that i really liked the urban decay brand which helped me narrow things down a little bit.
my mom still wanted to shop a little bit but at this point i was in need of an afternoon pick me up. enter: cappucino froyo with chocolate sprinkles. this was SO good.
and then we went to our last stop - target! i got a workout tank there a few weeks ago and really liked it, so when i didn't love any of the ones in lululemon i figured going back to target and grabbing a second tank in a different color would be a good idea. i actually brought in my new lululemon shorts to try on with some tanks to make sure i liked the two together, and ended up getting a light blue one.
i also finally got a blender bottle!! i can't wait to try making iced protein coffee with this baby.
all in all i spent around $150 today - all on things that i absolutely love! it was nice to splurge since i've been working SO MUCH lately and haven't been shopping in quite awhile. i also find it funny that all i bought was workout clothes and makeup, and no normal clothes. story of my life
i'm off to make dinner - some cheesy pasta is sounding mighty good right now!
where do you normally buy workout clothes?
